A short obituary together with information about the funeral on Tuesday, May 5, can be found here. And here you can find Murray's own web site.
In the year 2000 we honored Murray on occasion of his 60th birthday with a small conference which we called "Colloquiumfest". There were many limericks about Murray created on the occasion of the conference; they provide wonderful portraits of the great mathematician and friend we have now lost. This conference was the start of the Colloquiumfest series. It is very unfortunate that we were not able anymore to celebrate Murray's 75th birthday with a Colloquiumfest.
If anyone would like to write something about Murray, describing his mathematical work or sharing personal anecdotes, please send it to us and we will put it on the Valuation Theory Home Page. Here is a web page with the first contributions:
Two sessions in two different international conferences this summer have been dedicated to Murray's memory in recognition of his fundamental contributions to subjects such as Positive Polynomials, Sums of Squares and Moment Problems. See
